Hi Everyone,
I would like to ask you if my CPU is working normally. I installed the new MSI GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER GAMING X TRIO 8GB GDDR6 GPU. Earlier I had ASUS 1060 STRIX 6GB. When I used 1060, the CPU load on games like rainbow six siege, overwatch, COD was 60-70%. After installing the new card, despite starting Vsync, the load increased by up to 90-95% on the processor.
I did not change the graphics quality in these games, additionally, when setting FPS limits with identical values as in 1060, the load is increased. Vsync does not cause any change in CPU load. Whith the new card, I uninstalled the old drivers and installed new ones with the clean install option. I didn't use DDU.

I note that the temperatures are ok, Max 74C in high stress. I know the temperatures are fine but I'm worried about the CPU load changing.

My Specification:
Asus PRIME Z390-P
Intel Core i5-9600K, 3.7GHz, 9 MB, BOX , (OC to 4.7GHz)
MSI GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER
be quiet! POWER ZONE 650W
SSD Corsair MP510 960GB PCIe x4 NVMe
Corsair Vengeance LPX, DDR4, 16 GB, 3000MHz, CL15

Your CPU is working harder because you r new GPU can out out more frames so it has to keep up. You are now limited by your CPU.
yes, but I'm setting a frame limit. With 144 FPS, the load is still higher than when there are no limits for the old graphics card. And only FPS llimit works, with vsync in Nvidia Control Panel I still have 240 fps
